The first edition of the Association for Paediatric Palliative Medicine Master Formulary, published in January 2011, generated considerable interest. This was the first significant attempt to collate all available dosing information to support prescribing in paediatric palliative care in a single volume. 

The 3rd edition is a major update of the national paediatric palliative drug formulary with the majority of the drugs having changes, numerous new drugs added and some taken out. There is greater emphasis on drug safety and evidence base with over 100 new references. We are very happy to share the evidence used to form the formulary - please contact

We welcome any comments and ideas for the next edition.
